«Now for some easy chillout breaks, for a change. LA based Norman Fairbanks doesn't do what we like to call 'difficult listening music'. No, he doesn't. Instead, he crafts some of the best lie-down-and-try-not-to-think kind of tunes that I've had the pleasure to listen to this year. Take a look at his website and tell me if those Hollywood streets aren't just the perfect scenario to enjoy the kind of lush downbeat tracks that make up this Graceland EP, while driving to your Corvette at cruise...

I came across sheet music for the Victorian cliche classic “Home Sweet Home” in the June 1st, 1898 edition of S. S. Stewart’s Banjo and Guitar Journal. It’s an arrangement for guitar and mandolin, and I have an American-made mandolin from 1900 and American-made guitar from 1890, so I took the chance to do a super accurate period recording. Also, I thought that it might be useful to people making videos to have a permissively licensed modern recording of this instantly recognizable...

*Mirror*, by Russian artist Gemini Tri, is a collection of beautiful melancholic songs that explore the irrevocable separation of past from present, and the continued struggles of existence. Rather fortuitously, this landmark 50th release—eight years since our inception—harks back to our own past, delivering the kind of decayed loops, echoey arpeggios and heady atmospheres that came to define Archaic Horizon’s signature sound. In his first outing as Gemini Tri, Denis Piryazev demonstrates... Topics: melancholic, daydream, troubled, mysterious, nostalgic, glitchy, contemplative, dream pop,...
